dc.description.abstract A viable IPM programme involves a clear understanding of and the use of a number of components, the most important being the bionomics of insect pests; monitoring systems to establish the prevalence and seasonal occurrence of insect pests; calculation of economic thresholds; the biology of parasites and predators; utilisation of insect resistant plant varieties; and methods to maximise the advantages of pesticides and minimise their disadvantages. Insect-resistant crop varieties form an important part of IPM. There is usually no extra cost to the farmer once the resistant variety has been obtained and it is easily available to him thereafter. In the context of an IPM strategy, plant resistance should improve the impact on a pest population when both biological and chemical control methods are used. en_ZA
